Username and Password
Usually, your username will be the first letter of your first name followed by up to seven characters of your last name. In cases where duplicate usernames occur, additional characters from your first name will be used and less characters from your last name. For example, John Doe would be jdoe and Jane Doe would be jadoe. To find your username, go to MySNU and click the Username Lookup link.
Your password is initially set to the last five digits of your ID number. Beginning in the fall of 2003, new students will have a randomly generated ID number. Your Student ID has your ID number printed on it. The first time you log in with this password, you will be prompted to change it. It is very important that you keep this password private. The IT Department recommends using a mix of numbers, letters, and symbols to create a secure password. Do not share your password with anyone. Your password protects personal information such as grades, account balances, and email. If someone gains access to your account, you may be held responsible for actions committed with your account.

To promote good stewardship and reduce the amount of wasted paper, students are allowed to print a maximum of 500 pages each semester on network printers in the computer labs.

You may also add pages to your account by going to the Cashier’s window in Bresee Hall.
